If quaint charm is your preferred style, the Cottage Inn by the Sea has it in abundance. The boutique oceanfront hotel takes its inspiration from the English countryside with rustic-chic décor and cozy extras, like a gas fireplace in every room.
Set on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific, the inn has nearby access to the beach, so request an ocean-facing room to take advantage of the great view. Take a 15-minute stroll along the beach to downtown Pismo, dotted with beachy tourist shops and seafood restaurants. The 1,370-foot-long wooden Pismo Beach Pier is where most of the activity is, with boutiques and eateries clustered around the base.
The hotel has a heated oceanfront pool and spa, as well as fire pits to enjoy the cool night air. Extras include a complimentary continental breakfast, free parking and Wi-Fi.
